I have the version 3.0.19 of privoxy running on windows server 2008 and 2012. It really works like a charm and I'm very happy with it.
There is only one serious issue, there is a scraper running and when a currently used proxy stops working, it replaces the proxy with another IP and adapts the user.actions file with the new ip address. 99 percent of the time this works fine. But sometimes privoxy can't read the action file (I suppose because it was edited while privoxy tried to load it) so then privoxy displays the Error message. Then I have to click oke and restart privoxy and everything works fine again.
I want to run a program that checks the privoxy log file and restarts privoxy when he sees the fatal error message. But the problem is that the error message only gets logged after you click oke on the error message box. So there is a manual intervention required that I want to avoid.
Is there a way to disable this error message and just let Privoxy quit and log the error? Or can you let privoxy automatically restart? Or is it possible to configure privoxy to check the .action files again if he finds an error?
Thanks a lot,
